The big marketing angle for 2022 are the Dabs. I have been waiting for someone to mention the current glitch but no one has yet, so thought I would.
In its newly released version, reset isnt working with all brushes. If you play around with changing Dabs, in the way advertised, there's a risk you may corrupt you brush (and we are talking both native and custom brushes). The brush may then be stuck on your changed Dab and wont go back.
I was tipped off about it and I found that happened with a native Oils Bravura brush. someone else also has had that happen too. I gather Corel developers know about the issue. As a longtime Corel user, I find it surprising they didn't fix this before release (or haven't mentioned it on the Welcome screen or email etc) when it one of the major advertised feature of the new release.
I have kindly been advised by someone in the Painter community there is a current workaround - while Reset is not working for Dab Type = Captured, is working the for Circular Dab Type brushes. So, if you change a Captured type brush, click on Circular Dab Type, and now click Reset, the brush should now be reset.
Hope this saves someone some headaches. This sort of thing has become a recurrent issue with art software. It is often released to a marketing date when they are still working on it. You don't buy a new car that 'mostly works, except for some situations which may actually cause damage. But its Ok we are still working on it"!
I have the same issue. I reached out to support at Corel, even attached a video showing the issue, but I got a copy-paste response to reset factory settings (which I said in my original email I had already done), then I got a copy-paste for something completely unrelated (asking for me to send a crash report when the software hadn't crashed) sent 1 minute after I posted my response. So support is not helpful.
My workaround is, for every brush I experiment with that I sort of like:
1) Save that variant to a custom brush group
2) Save the dab from that brush
Quite a few of the dabs that exist in the default brush sets aren't included in the Captured Dab panel. As each brush has a preview of the dab as an image saved against it, you can always visually match the dab in the brush preview with the dab in the Captured Dab panel.
Just a quick note on this...another possible work-around is the following:
Scenario: you have changed the captured dab of a brush, and you want to reset it to the original dab image
Open the Advanced Brush controls, and find the "General" panel within
Change the Dab type to "circular"
This should restore the original dab.
If you find the advanced brush controls are taking up too much real-estate, you can optional press Ctrl+B on Windows (or Cmd+B on a Mac) which will open up the General panel. By default it is in a group of panels..you can ungroup it by clicking the tab at the top of the panel and placing it where you like in your layout.
Note: This is basically the same work-around as Astronaut mentioned, but with a bit more detail. ;)
Thanks for the extra detail, that helped, and like magic it worked!
